Debating between Ibersostar Lindo and Barcelo Maya

Recommended Posts

I had a tough time deciding which resort to choose, and I finally decided to go with Iberostar Lindo. I read a lot on here (just search Iberostar Lindo) and also on tripadvisor. Some reasons I chose the Lindo: Guests have several resorts to choose from with a variety of price ranges, and they are all located within one complex, the reviews were great on tripadvisor for families with kids of all ages (important for me b/c I really wanted my younger brothers to have a great time), reviews of the wedding coordinators are mostly positive, the resort looks beautiful, and after reading other brides reviews and seeing pictures, that helped alot. Congratulations and Good Luck with you decision!

Welcome to the forum! I was in the same boat as we were going back and forth between the two hotels! I stayed at the Iberostar Paraiso Beach a few years back and have nothing but great things to say about it. Iberostar does such a great job entertaining their guests and making them feel welcome...plus the resort was so beautiful and well maintained. I also went on a site visit to the Barcelo back in April and it was also beautiful and stunning! Both resorts were huge complexes and gave our guests the flexibility to stay at different hotels (price ranges) depending on their needs. We ended up going with Barcelo because we really had our hearts set on having a beach ceremony. As far as I know, Iberostar only does the dinners in the restaurants, which was really not an option for us :o( This might have changed though 'cause I could've sworn I saw a some bride's pictures with a reception at some outdoors-y type of venue. I'm sure you can't really go wrong either way. Let me know if you need any information and good luck with the decision.

Thanks for the all the info and the confirmation that at least I'm going in the right direction with my decision. The only issue I'm having is the WC seem to be missing in action. I've sent like 5 emails and have gotten one response that didn't address any of my questions. Maybe there is a restraining order being filed somewhere in Mexico :)

Hi!

I am also looking for info about the Barcelo Maya Resort. It looks awesome! I am sorry but its still really early for me in the research phase so I don't have much to offer in advice yet. But I saw you were in Chicago too and thought I would reply with well wishes and let you know I will keep you posted as I go along. We are looking for an April-May 2011 date. How about you?

Glad to see someone else in Chicago! I also have a friend who is planning her wedding at Barcelo around the same time as you, and she's gotten some feedback that I can share with you.. Let me know if you have any specific questions.

 

I think we are set on October 30th.

 

Have contacted the WC yet? I suggest you start doing it now, because they are very slow to respond to your questions.

I have not reached out to anyone yet due to still being in research mode. However its starting to make my brain hurt so I am sure I will just pick one soon! ha!

 

Oct 30th sounds like a great time! You'll get away right when it starts getting cold!

 

Well keep us all posted on what you decide and I am definitely interested in your buddy's Barcelo info.

Does she know yet how much rooms are in a wedding block? That is something that seems tricky to pin down, and its an important part of it all for us because we have guests on budgets.

 

If she has any info on that that would rock!

I'll send you what I find. So far that unofficial site for Barcelo seems pretty helpful.

 

cheers to the weekend!

Ok, so as far as Barcelo, I have tons of emails I can forward, so if you're interested give me your email and I will send away :)

 

I've been doing more research and came across Azul Sensatori. Let me tell you, it blows ever wedding package out of the water! The ceremony is amazing, and they do some beautiful private beach receptions.. My only concern is the size of the resort.. It's seems very small in comparison to Barcelo and Lindo, and I'm just afraid that guests will get bored.

 

It's considered a "boutique" resort, and supposedly the service and the food is impecible. Bottom line is, I'm confused..

Sorry meant to reply to this post. Like I said, I have an abundance of emails from Barcelo, Lindo and now Azul that I can forward to your email address..

 

The bad thing is that it seems as though the more information you have, the more confused you become!

    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now. 
    • I think that would be a great idea. I have tried it once and loved it.!
    • That's really sweet. I am sure she would love that.!!
